Tentative 2 week itinerary for Paris

Jump to last reply

I got so much great feedback from my London/se UK post that I hope to luck out again.
I am currently planing a 2+ month long trip to Europe. Travelers are my husband and myself, both retired and over the age of 60. I have some knee issues so walking down stairs (ok walking up) makes for a slow go. This will be our first trip to Paris. I took French in college so can get by-barely!

We will arrive in Paris via Eurostar that we will take from Ashford International in the UK. Hoping to get the 9:55 am train. Should I pre purchase these tickets? I hesitate to do this as we will be coming from Canterbury-not too far away-but returning our rental car first. I'm not 100% sure we will be able to make that morning train. My plan is to find a 1BR apartment rental in Paris located near public transport-bus or metro. Looking at places in 15th, 4th, 5th, or 6th. Open to any suggestions. Budget 150 euros-could go higher if place really special. Plan to do breakfast most days in the apt. but we will have dinners in restaurants/cafes. I'd like to do 1 splurge dinner-maybe the one at the Eiffel Tower? If so I will make a reservation before we even leave the US.

Will want to buy some good chocolates (dark preferred) and good wine to have as a late night treats in the apt. This is for me. My husband is a beer drinker, cheese, crackers kind of guy.

My passion for Paris is Monet, museums and the Cathedrals. I plan to buy the Paris Museum pass. Will buy carnets for public transport.

day 1-arrive to apartment, settle in, buy some supplies, check out the neighborhood.

day 2- Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle, check out the Pont Neuf, walk over to Ile St. Louis if time permits.

day 3-Pantheon, Eglise Saint-Sulpice, Luxembourg Garden, Eglise Saint-Germain Des-Pres

day 4-Chartres day trip

day 5- Orangerie, Tuileries Garden, Orsay- will aim for a Thursday to take advantage of later hours

day 6- Louvre-plan is for this on a Wednesday or Friday for the late hours; will visit, leave for lunch nearby, and re-enter Louvre, maybe Palais-Royal

day 7- Rodin, Invalides, picnic lunch Trocadero, Eiffel Tower

day 8- Versailles day trip

day 9- Sacre Coeur, Pompidou Center I know they are not close to each other but I didn't know how else to do this-any advice??

day 10- Seine river cruise

day 11- Marmottan

day 12-Giverny day trip

day 13- Champs Elysees walk, Arch de Triomphe

day 14-Cluny, Eiffel Tower just before dusk

The order of the days can easily be switched to accommodate weather or other circumstances. Some days appear lighter than others so we will also be doing some people watching from cafes and just aimless wandering. I will do very little shopping-mainly things to bring home for family and friends-souvenir stuff. If anything catches my eye for myself I'll get it. My husband will want me to pick up some mustard that I've read about on other posts.

I have no idea if this itinerary is too rushed, doable or not, completely wrong order, etc. I welcome any and all advice, suggestions, even criticisms! Thanks in advance for any help.
